U18's Bounce Back In Ilkeston
Ilkeston Outlaws 65-77 Encon Derbyshire Arrows U18’s
The Arrows swiftly got back to wining form as they took a closely contested game against the Ilkeston Outlaws by 77–65.
The Arrows lost their unbeaten record last week but showed that they are going to remain in contention as the return of Coach Matt Oakey saw them grind out the win. Alex Lycoudis and Joe Longden impressed for the Arrows who used a big 26-11 second quarter to propel them to yet another road victory.
The 77-65 win for Coach Oakey's youngsters now opens up a gap between the Arrows, who occupy second place in the Midlands East Conference, and the chasing pack.
The Arrows return to Killamarsh on Saturday morning when they host Leicester Riders II in an 11:30am tip off.
